i get so upset with tpb because whomever that is keeps uploading picture books without the pictures. at least they act as an index of sorts to google books because the google ones do have the images included.

Interesting. Can you post a URL for example? I'd like to see it (or not in this case).

The book main page: "A Friend or Two"
http://www.archive.org/details/afriendortwo01nesbgoog

Click on "HTTP", then click on the .pdf file, and it will bring up the color version.

I see what you mean about the Flip Book and DjuVu versions are in B&W, looks like a conversion problem, or policy decision..

I don't know if it's related, but there is also a B&W version both on Google and Internet Archive:

Interesting book btw.

well whaddaya know! i forgive tpb everything!

but one question, if i may: is there a way to see the color version here before downloading the pdf?

i followed your instructions, but it downloaded the pdf; is there a way to see it?

and i wonder if there's a way to suggest to somebody that it would be great if these had color flipbooks....

thank you!

The idea of Flip Book is exactly that, so you don't have to download the PDF. So yeah. It looks like a bug or error that should be reported. Good catch.

oh--you know what i just realized?: if you do not click on http but click directly on pdf you're immediately taken to the google page for the book with color examples of any illustrations. you download from there.

Yeah.. but the Flip Book should still be in color. This forum is the place to report. Since this thread is old and down the list I may re-post a summary as a new post.
